enough to get a compromise and to get it through both houses. that remains a big question this afternoon, and -- and it doesn't seem like we've got a clear answer on really where that goes yet. >> all right. let's get out of the beltway for a second here, kate, because we've got a poll today showing 62% of americans now favor raising the debt ceiling one way or another, either with or without debt reduction. got a block of senate republicans accepting higher revenues, ie taxes, as part of tax reduction. are these holdout house republicans becoming more isolated, and are they begin to feel the heat to compromise here? >> reporter: it's hard to say. we've talked to some very conservative republicans about that, and they stand very firmly in their belief that they do not think this a tax increase should be part of any debt deal because they don't think that it's good for the economy, and they say many of them were elected in 2010 really basically on this point, that they need to get the country's fiscal house in order and not continue spending, spending, spending, that they should be reduci
finally came out publicly with a bipartisan, big, tough plan, a framework for how to deal with our very real challenge with our record deficits and debt. it's my hope that the senate will consider cut, cap and be balance, defeat it and then put a responsible plan on the floor, one that shares the sacrifice across all the areas of our budget and that puts forward the kind of framework that everyone can support. bill: okay. on the cut, cap and balance, so you agree with harry reid that this is a waste of time on a balanced budget. why would a balanced budget amendment when polls show 72% of those surveyed favor it, why would you be opposed to that, senator? >> i don't speak for leader reid, obviously, but what i think the leader was suggesting was that with ten days left until we default on america's mortgage, we should be focusing on things that have a very real chance of passage in both houses and that can avoid the catastrophic consequences of defaulting on america's debt. i think leader reid and many of us in the senate are concerned that if we simply keep ping-ponging back and forth
. bill: he says you can take care of the debt ceiling one vote. but that leaves a big problem and that's the debt. >> it's the debt itself. i couldn't agree more. the crisis comes, bill, not if we don't pass the debt ceiling, but if we do pass a debt ceiling it send a signal to the financial markets around the world that the united states is not capable of dealing with this enormous debt. that's the crisis. if we don't get a credible plan that brings the deficit spending down over the next two years and the president has been holding out on that. bill: do you think the markets will be spooked by that? >> you are exactly right. even as moody's and s & p said they will downgrade the debt. you would expect for the interest rate on those bonds to go up but the last couple weeks they have gone down. we cast a carte blanche $2.5 trillion increase in the debt i believe that could cause a financial panic. bill: that forces the markets to quiver. >> this is the ultimate point of leverage. that's why there has been a stalemate. republicans said if we cave on this we'll never get serious about sp
't get licensing for all sorts of things like fishing and what not be, and it's a big recreational state. it cost the state millions in be lost revenue from lottery sales, tax audits, park fees and licensing fees, so on and so forth, but now they can go ahead. some state officials now saying, though, it may take some time to get programs back up and running so they can be moneymakers again for the state. and those 22,000 state employees can go back to work, but it's kind of a phase-in situation. so the big headline in all of this is the longest-running state shutdown in a decade in this country now has come to a close with the governor making an agreement with leading republicans in the state of minnesota. now back to you guys. jenna: hi, everybody, so glad you're joining us today, i'm jenna lee. jon: and i'm jon scott. we are here in the fox newsroom and "happening now," brand new numbers in the race for the white house.

do if they had a lot of time. they don't have a lot of time right now. >> that's the big question and the big factor at the center of all of this. they don't have a lot of time and they need to move both of these through both chambers of congress and somehow reconcile them, how they're going to do that. >> let me go back to the white house. it looks like these two plans, they're obviously a senate plan by majority leader harry reid and house plan by speaker john boehner. does the white house feel sidelined or left out of thf process? >> i had this question, too, and i talked with one official who said the president can't be sidelined. he is the president. he has the power of the veto pen. he's the one who says ultimately if something moves. although inthe thought is if he was given a plan that could get through congress, i think the thought is how could he do anything but sign it? but certainly the president and the white house have been very much in touch with senate democrats and the roll right now is that senate majority leader harry reid is pretty much the president's lifeline
